Practice Overview

False Claims Act

Cravath represents and advises clients on a range of matters relating to the federal False Claims Act (“FCA”) and similar state legislation, which permit private individuals to initiate lawsuits alleging that the government has been defrauded and to claim a share of any resulting recovery.

Our experience in this area includes not only the successful defense of corporations that have been sued under the FCA, but also the conduct of internal investigations and the recommendation and implementation of compliance and remedial programs, as well as the negotiation of settlement agreements. We have also represented clients in connection with other matters relating to the FCA, such as employment retaliation claims asserted by whistleblowers, related shareholder litigation and SEC investigations and various corporate governance and disclosure issues.
